A Day of Free Concerts to Celebrate Resorts’ Enhanced Beach Vibe and Margaritaville Launch - June 15, 2013
On June 15, hit musicians Andy Grammer, Mac McAnally and Wilson Phillips will take their acts to the Atlantic City beach for a day of free concerts hosted by Resorts Casino Hotel. Staged on The LandShark Beach at Resorts from 1 p.m. into the evening (the last concert starts at 7 p.m.), this major event will “seat” music lovers, beachgoers and gamers on the sand for a series of 90-minute sets interspersed with DJ entertainment, prize giveaways, and more.
Kicking off a summer series of great entertainment at Resorts, the June 15 concerts will celebrate Resorts’ enhanced beach vibe and the launch of its $35-million Margaritaville casino and entertainment complex. Inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of Jimmy Buffett, Margaritaville is slated to open Memorial Day
Weekend. Among the attractions it will introduce to the Boardwalk is the only year-round bar directly on the Atlantic City beach – LandShark Bar & Grill – just steps across the sand from the concert site.
Andy Grammer launched onto the national music scene in 2012 as the first male pop star since John Mayer to reach the adult pop radio Top 10 on his first two singles. His “Keep Your Head Up” is certified Gold and fast approaching Platinum, and a recent national tour with Train set the stage for the former Santa Monica street performer’s own 2013 headline tour in 2013.
Mac McAnally, the Country Music Association’s Musician of the Year for five years running, is celebrating the release of his 11th album, Live in Muscle Shoals. His longtime association with Jimmy Buffett – as songwriter, producer of several Buffett albums, and member of his touring Coral Reefer Band – makes him a natural for the June 15 concert. McAnally cemented his status as a hit maker in 1981 when Alabama took his “Old Flame” to No. 1.
Wilson Phillips comes to the Atlantic City beach fresh off the April release by Sony Masterworks of Dedicated, the famed female trio’s long-awaited album covering hits by The Beach Boys and the Mamas and the Papas. Sisters Carnie and Wendy Wilson,
daughters of The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson, and Chynna Phillips, daughter of The Mamas & The Papas’ John and Michelle Phillips, first merged their talents in 1990 with the eponymous, chart-topping Wilson Phillips. The lifelong friends also star this spring in Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On, a TV Guide Network reality show.
The Beach at Resorts is located at the northern end of the Boardwalk, at North Carolina Avenue. Concert-goers will find multiple, secured points of entry and are invited to bring their beach towels, blankets or chairs, as well as food. Alcoholic beverages will not be permitted.
